    Watching this in hindsight you can see he never was seriously going to stay in Toronto

      Should have known he wasnt coming back after this interview. "Something the raptors can build on" then corrected himself

          Not my boy! He should have defended the championship. Then if not successful moved on. Guess he didn't like Toronto or Canadians.
          Definitely his loss!! He wasn't the sole reason that Raps won. He'll see that in 2020. Raps will win again because of Masai not Kawhi.

            5:01 Kawhi remembers to smile is adorable :) I hoped he stays in Toronto, but wish him everything well in LA!

              He cared about it. I wish he was still here. But he played his ass off when he was in Toronto. He wanted to bring them to the promised land. And he probably knew beforehand that he had only one opportunity to do it. The greatest sports memory I have enjoyed. Good luck in LA, Kawhi

                  Mr. Leonard drives a 20 year old reliable car. I think the honest team who does not try to bribe him will end up as the winners.

                      In a league where every player shares every goddamn thing possible on their social media and broadcast everything possible... Kawhi is a breath of fresh air with his quiet, unrevealing attitude. Dude balls out on the court and doesnt talk shit. Well deserved 💍

                                It's good Toronto won a championship cos it's the last one they'll see. I don't understand what an inferiority complex that city has? First what "Canadian" championship is this? Most of the players on the team are American, and African. So what the city is in Canada that's true, but most of the people who live in Toronto are non Torontonian born. A lot of them are bandwagon jumpers not real fans. Where were the Raptors fans years ago? nowhere exactly. Maybe what 10,000 a game? or less? All of a sudden they win the NBA championship and they go bonkers in a resentful kind of way. Boooing a league superstar like Kevin Durant when the man was clearly hurt. Only a classless moronic city like Toronto would do such a thing. As for your "fun guy" Kawhi Leonard? He's already won a championship and once LA Lakers ( an always serious contender) give him more bucks he's off shoo gone. He has family in LA you think he gonna stick around in cold ass Toronto" we the north". Again what's with the "we the North" bull***. Like you some kind of special? big **** deal you're in Canada wow. And then you have that moron Drake who flies around his stupid jet indicating that heez the man. Ok Drake yeah you're a famous rapper we all know, and you like showing off yeah fine. Fuck Toronto and Toronto fans. They're fake fans and represent a stupid city. Kawhi will probably leave for bigger and better or greener pastures and Toronto will suck it next year from the likes of Houston, Lakers, and Golden State. Haha hia haaa .

                                    He's outta there and it's a damn shame. Still, with luck he's headed to the Clippers where he can wreak havoc on the West and leave my Heat alone

                                            The Warriors were too injured and Curry is not a player that can lead his team or be there when it matters.

Supposedly he didn't want to come, and Masai was trying to reassure Raptor Nation that he had great discussions with Kawhi; hope he stays, but if he doesn't, Raptor fans will love him forever.
